The holidays are here I must admit it’s been a very celebratory time of year for me. I was recently engaged! One month ago from today 11/11 to be exact and not to gush but I have just really just been in bliss.I have been enjoying the specials moments with my family and now fiancé and have gotten into full wedding planning mode. Steven being the thoughtful guy he is really wanted to make this day special for not only me and him but our families who have also been waiting on this moment specifically our mothers. While I was thinking I was planning a birthday weekend for him he was indeed planning to surprise me, which he definitely did.
Simple yet sweet with our favorite city as our backdrop lighting up the sky on he got down on one knee and asked me if I would become his wife. I figure we were taking some photos for the blog before heading out to celebrate for him,I had no clue what I was in for, but thanks to my brother and sister in law I have a precious clip (watch here) of the moments leading up to and directly after the big moment.Though it wound up being private and personal just us two which was perfect in its own way,our family and friends were right down the path after our special moment sharing in the excitement. We then continued to what I thought were my small dinner plans which turned into an engagement celebration dinner for about 25 of our closest family and friends. The nights celebrations continued from our special 11/11 day to Stevens 11/12 Birthday.
Ofcourse this weekend the temperatures dropped so low and it was freezing so I had a last minute outfit change. I ended up wearing an ultra sparking completely bare back gold top with my new glfrnd jeans and plaid blazer. For my outerwear of-course I was in the brightest color around to true rainbow form as Steven so often teases.
We have always had a thing for 11:11 as cliche as it is,so much so that I have engraved it on the inside a few of his watches, and I honestly don’t think any 11:11 wish could top this day! I feel like I have known him my whole life meeting back in high-school and pretty much growing up together since then. I can’t wait for the day we officially become husband and wife.
“The best love is the kind that awakens the soul; that makes us reach for more, that plants the fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds. That’s what I hope to give you forever…”
